Joining a professional association is a great way to expand your professional network. As a member, you are eligible to:
Access “members only” job boards
Attend the group’s conferences and conventions
Take professional courses and seminars
Receive journals, newsletters and trade publications that will keep you up to date on trends, developments and movers and shakers in your field.
There is a professional association for almost any career field you can mention. A list of professional associations recommended by Bentley faculty members is below. If you do not see an association for your career field, visit to Weddles.com: the online directory of professional associations, or review a list of associations compiled by our office. Most libraries also have ihe Encyclopedia of Associations and a directory called National Trade & Professional Associations.
